Thank you Lifehouse was incorporated in Marin County in 1954 by a group of parents who wanted an educational program for their children with developmental disabilities. At that time there were no special education programs and children with special needs were at a loss for receiving educational services that met their unique qualifications. With the help of visionary leaders at Dominican University and collaboration with Marin County Office of Education, the parents created a preschool, and later a kindergarten that eventually grew into an excellent special education program managed by the Marin County Office of Education. As long-time Lifehouse clients began to reach adulthood, our programs evolved to serve the needs of adults with developmental disabilities. Some of our clients have been with us since pre-school.
